Worst 'Big Brother' move in history? Host Julie Chen weighs in

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother. Check out her thoughts on the finale, and make sure to enjoy our exit interviews with Derrick, Cody, and Victoria.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Well, Julie, you called it that Cody would take Derrick to the end. Gameplay wise, is that the worst decision in Big Brother history? I mean, that cost him $450,000.
JULIE CHEN: Yes, and no. Yes, it cost him $450k. But at the end of the day, how could he live with himself stabbing a buddy, big bro figure and mentor in the back? Cody seems to be a good guy with a conscience and looks to come from a solid loving family. He chose loyalty over greed and that shows this kid has integrity. Not half a mil, but integrity…and that’s worth way more in life. Good karma.  READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother': Derrick, Cody, and Victoria talk about Cody's big blunder

The longest season ever of Big Brother finally came to close last night as Derrick Levasseur was crowned the champion of Big Brother 16, beating his best buddy Cody by a vote of 7-2 in the finals. Derrick’s victory was cemented after Cody won the final Head of Household competition and then made the inexplicable decision to evict Victoria (whom he easily would have beaten in the finals) instead of Derrick (whom he stood no chance against). It was a $450,000 mistake for Cody. We spoke to the final three of Derrick, Cody, and Victoria this morning on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), and you can now hear the entire thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast.

Does Cody regret his decision? Would Derrick similarly not have brought Victoria to the end as he claimed while working the jury last night? And was Victoria hurt by Derrick’s answer? We get to the bottom of all that and more…like, say, the fact tat Victoria claims she would have “100%” won had Cody taken her to the end. Don’t believe us? Just click on the audio player icon below to listen in. Again, to repeat: VICTORIA SAYS SHE WOULD HAVE WON BIG BROTHER! READ FULL STORY

Julie Chen says not to count on another 'Big Brother: All-Stars' any time soon

Season 16 of Big Brother concludes tonight at 9:30pm on CBS when either Derrick, Cody, or Victoria…okay, make that either Derrick or Cody, will be crowned champion. And according to host Julie Chen, even Cody is a long shot at this point. Can Derrick complete one of the most dominant performances this game has ever seen? We talked with Chen about Derrick’s place in Big Brother history and whether anyone can stop him. But we didn’t stop there. In a very candid chat, Chen also frankly discussed how the houseguests view Victoria, how she feels about not having any of the racist and homophobic nonsense that plagued last season’s edition, and why she does not think another All-Stars edition is a good idea right now. Read on for pure, unfiltered Chenbot!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I asked you last week if there was any chance that Derrick and Cody would actually bring each other to the finals when they have Victoria there, who both of them would easily beat in the finals, and you said something really interesting. You said that you actually think that they both would and will bring each other if given the opportunity.
JULIE CHEN: No question. And that’s because if you look at Cody, he’s just a kid, and he looks up to Derrick like his big bro. And it’s not in Cody’s nature in my opinion to stab his mentor in his back — on anybody. It’s hard. He’s not a bad kid, so Cody will take Derrick to the end if he is the one who has to make the choice, knowing he will kiss a half million dollars goodbye. It’s not in his nature to be a backstabber. In terms of Derrick, he could take just about anybody and he’s taking home that check for a half million dollars. And I think he knows it. I mean, maybe Cody gets one vote to win over Derrick if it’s those two men in the finals. Maybe he gets Christine’s vote, but I don’t think so. READ FULL STORY

Caleb (a.k.a. Beast Mode Cowboy) of 'Big Brother' on being betrayed by Derrick

Beast Mode Cowboy will have to take his act to the jury house as 26-year-old Caleb Reynolds was voted out of Big Brother last night. He was ultimately done in by his alliance partners Cody and Derrick, who got rid of Caleb to keep the much more beatable Victoria in the final three. We were able to ask Caleb a few questions en route to his new digs and here’s what he had to say about his ouster, whom he blames, and how he would have done had he made the finals.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How shocked were you when Cody voted you out?
CALEB: Honestly, I wasn’t too shocked. I expected it because Victoria was a weaker target and to guarantee himself as a final two he would have been dumb to pick me.

You talked about how important loyalty is to you. Do you feel betrayed?
Yeah, more so by Derrick than by anybody.   READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother' host Julie Chen on 'shocked, embarrassed, confused' Caleb

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Well, a very different exit this time around as opposed to the one the night before with Frankie. What did you sense with Caleb when he walked out —  just utter shock?
I think he was shocked and embarrassed and confused. But I think the thunderous applause took over and he was enjoying the attention. Good for him. I am sure he was hurt and felt played.  READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother' host Julie Chen on Frankie's exit and Derrick's biggest competition

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You called Frankie’s reaction after being voted out, “the happiest eviction I’ve ever seen.” Did all that enthusiasm and flying glitter take you back a bit?
Not at all. I expected no less from a showman like Frankie. He was consistent this summer — always interesting to watch. This guy was born to be in front of an audience. READ FULL STORY

Frankie of 'Big Brother' says he does not regret pushing the Rewind button and wants to marry Zach

It’s a good thing VHS tapes are pretty much extinct because Frankie Grande may never want to Be Kind — Rewind ever again. The professional “YouTube personality” (and brother of current pop princess Ariana Grande) was running the Big Brother house last week as Head of Household yet could not stop himself form pressing the mysterious button that showed up in the house. Once pressed, the BB Rewind button meant that the entire week in the house would be replayed, and Frankie went from HOH to being evicted by his fellow houseguests and alliance partners. How does Frankie feel about their betrayal? Does he regret pushing that infernal button? And what can we expect form his reunion with the other half of Zankie? We were able to slip some questions to Frankie on his way to the jury house, and here’s what he had to say.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You kind of led the charge to hitting the Rewind button that wiped out your entire week as HOH. Now that you’ve experienced the results and were sent packing, do you regret it?
FRANKIE GRANDE: I don’t regret pushing the button because as a Big Brother super fan, there was no option — the button was going to be pushed. I’m happy I led the charge too. The only thing I regret is not winning the HOH again. READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother' host Julie Chen on who was helped and hurt by the Rewind button

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Julie, did you think there was any possible chance whatsoever that one of these people was not going to press the BB Rewind button?
JULIE CHEN: There was no chance in “you know where” that these houseguests were NOT pressing the button. These are hard core die hard fans! If they didn’t press the button, they wouldn’t deserve to be there.  READ FULL STORY

Watch a sneak peek of the 'Big Brother' Jeff and Jordan engagement

The ultimate Big Brother alliance was formed on Friday when former players Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd got engaged in the Big Brother backyard and then celebrated with this season’s current crop of contestants. (Sadly, neither the Zingbot nor Otev made an appearance. Nor was Mr. PEC-tacular around for this particular bit of Big Brother history. Still stuck in Pandora’s Box perhaps?)

The ultimate BB reality showmance moment — with apologies to Mike Boogie’s season finale proposal to Krista back in season 2 —will air on tonight’s episode (and will include country star Brett Eldredge performing for the happy couple. Take that, Sheryl Crow!) But you can get an exclusive sneak peek right here and right now. Watch Jeff trick Jordan into thinking she’s taking part in a competition. Watch Jeff tell Jordan, “Five years ago we met here, so I wanted to come full circle.” And then watch Jeff drop to one knee. READ FULL STORY

Christine of 'Big Brother' says 'me and my husband have a very secure relationship'

Christine Brecht, a 23-year-old Barista from Tucson, Ariz. was the victim of Big Brother‘s second double elimination of the season last night. And to make matters worse, she was then on the receiving end of boos from the studio audience after being evicted. Was that because of the cuddling, stroking, and hand-holding we saw married Christine taking part in with Cody? Was it because she repeatedly backstabbed friend Nicole? Big Brother host Julie Chen already weighed in on that, but we were able to also get Christine’s take on her time in the house and how she thinks her husband may be reacting to what he saw on the show.

Nicole of 'Big Brother' says 'I feel like they are all babies'

Nicole Franzel, 21-year-old nursing school graduate, was evicted from the Big Brother house not once, but twice! After winning the right to reenter the game from the jury house, Nicole was right back out the door just two votes later. What does she think about her second go-round, the people that refuse to make a move, and her future with Hayden? We slipped some questions to Nicole on her way back to the jury house and here’s what she had to say.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Which was harder: being voted out the first time or the second?
NICOLE: The second, I don’t know why.

You mentioned to Julie that you never felt totally into the game once you got back in. Why is that?
I think because I knew I was already voted out once. I had no allies in the house. And everyone seemed much closer and more unified than it was before.  READ FULL STORY

Julie Chen on 'Big Brother' boos: 'No one likes to see a woman making a fool of her husband'

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, Julie, that BB Rewind explanation was pretty quick last night. Give us a refresher on exactly how this will work and your thoughts on what it could do to the game.
JULIE CHEN: Basically if the rewind button gets pushed, the two nominees next week come off the block and we immediately rewind the game one week. That means all house guests play for HOH all over again…. So there could likely be a new HOH, two new nominees, a new POV winner and then who knows who gets bounced from the house next.  [UPDATE: Julie sent the following update for clarification on this point: "To clarify: All the Houseguests, who competed last night, will play for HOH all over again.  Sorry for any confusion. Chenbot malfunction.  What the bleep #%€?¥!?”] READ FULL STORY
